Few points to note while making Capsicum Fry Recipe : 

  • I enjoy capsicum mostly when little crunchy and crispy. So, I roast them just for 3-4 mins. However, if you like more cooked capsicum you can make it. The choice is yours.
  • You can either deskin’ peanuts or use them as such after roasting.
  • Tamarind gives a nice tanginess to the curry. You can replace it with dry mango powder( amchur), lemon, or tomatoes.
  • You can adjust the spices as per your taste. But it tastes best when made a little spicy.
  • Adding coconut is optional.
  • If you like it garlicky, along with roasted peanut, you can add few garlic and powder them.
